The Business with George Lee, 2nd March 2013 - Winning in the Whiskey World

We're joined by two men attempting to make the most of such opportunities. Jack Teeling has set up the Teeling Whiskey Company. Oliver Hughes is the founder of the Dingle Distillery.

The drama conveys the impression that working in the business back then was all about swinging dresses, swilling drinks and, well, office sex. Jane Maas, started out as a copy-writer on Madison Avenue, working alongside the so called "Mad Men".
She went on to become a creative director at the Ogilvy advertising agency, running the iconic campaign "I Love New York". She joins us from New York
